Whether or not it’s safe to apply paint protection film at home depends on your definition of safe. As far as the actual risk of anything goes, it’s no more or less safe than any other DIY project. The problems start to sneak in when you factor in the possibility that you could install the protection film in a way that either looks terrible or starts to peel away.
When our crews install PPF, they use a series of professional commercial-grade computer cut templates. They pre-cut all of the films, eliminating the need to put any blade close to your automobile.
When you deliver a clean vehicle to us, we inspect it for any paint defects and then estimate the time and cost of installing PPF. You may want to consider requesting a free quote online if you’re considering having this done anytime soon. A computer program powered by an existing template will then cut the material to fit.
If you were to do this yourself, then there’s a good chance that you’d probably have to lay the film out over your vehicle and then cut it to match the size of the body. Classic car collectors are probably cringing at the mere thought of putting a pair of scissors or a knife anywhere near the body of their cars. You probably should too.
Any wrong move could cause a rather severe divot on the finish. At the same time, there’s a possibility that you could miss some of the work necessary for the edges.
When you bring us a car, we make sure to manicure all of the edges along the ends of the paint protection covering. The same would go for the film on a boat or RV. That way, you can be sure that you’re not running into any situation where there’s a degree of the extraneous film right at the end of a line on your bodywork.
You don’t want to risk any of these extraneous pieces of film catching something. That could pull the rest of it up, defeating the purpose of having it in the first place.
The chances are that you don’t want to try doing this yourself. It’s a lot of work, and any mistakes that you might make could potentially be quite costly. Protecting your vehicle is undoubtedly an admirable thing to do, but it’s something that’s often best left to the experts.
When you come to Team Acme for car paint protection film, you won’t have to worry about scratches. The potential damage is significant because you probably want this film applied to protect the underlying paint scheme.

Paint protection film (PPF), also called clear bra paint protection, is a thin, rubber-like film that can be stretched and molded to fit most major impact areas on any recreational vehicle. The military industrialized it, and Used to protect paint and headlight lenses, PPF is a simple way to keep your vehicle looking good for years to come.
One of the largest investments someone can make on wheels, a motorhome is an expensive investment that should be properly cared for. Clear bra paint protection will keep the front of your coach looking as pristine as the interior, no matter what adventures life may bring.
Mainly, paint protection shields your car from road debris, water damage or UV rays. Especially in areas with high traffic, random dust and rocks can end up on your car body, creating tiny nicks and scratches.
In the state of Nevada and other bright areas, many vehicles run the risk of bleaching from excessive sunlight. This affects both the exterior and the interior. Having an extra layer of PFF reduces the potential damage and adds years of life to your vehicle.
Additionally, paint protection can come in a transparent film. This means that you can show off your vehicle’s paint job without worry about it being obscured. Car specialists can apply the film so that it doesn’t hurt the paint finish, and it will contour to any vehicular body shape.
Boat paint protection is great insurance for your boat. Just think of all the abuse the top edges and the rear deck get from people climbing into the boat. Not to mention all of the toys that get thrown into the water and then drug back into the boat. You can also protect the sides of the boat where the dock might rub.
Almost invisible and easily changed out if damaged, PPF is the most practical decision you can make when it comes to caring for your boat. Gel coat is not something that you can just patch paint back in and a proper repair is a lot of work and money. Just protecting the high traffic and impact areas are sure to keep your investment in shape to keep its value at its peak.
It’s easy to remove water spots from this film, and it can be buffed and waxed if necessary. As a boat owner myself, water spots are my worst enemy and PPF really helps.
Yes, that’s right! I said recreational vehicles. Southern Nevada has a great off-road community. This includes sand rails, trophy trucks, race buggies, etc. It won’t protect you from the other guys driving, but you won’t get sandblasted either.
You can also install PPF to protect those high traffic areas where people get in and out of the vehicle, often scraping their boots on your nice custom paint. Especially when you have families and large parties in the RV.
Keeping your paint protection means that you can clean your RV without worries about water damage. This can include spotting on your paint job from leaving suds on one side for too long.
This works doubly so for in areas with water restrictions, and you ended to work on smaller kits. Many drivers need to work fast and with different car parts, that are made of fiberglass, aluminum, or glass. PPF helps reduce the need for painstaking effort.
Paint protection film isn’t just for cars. Team Acme has a team of experts that can apply high-quality finishes to any vehicle. We will ensure that you will get extra years of life on your paint job, with the right amount of paint protection.

Paint protection film (PPF) is a clear, rubber-like film that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle to prevent road debris from damaging your paint and headlight lenses.
With over 10 years of experience using all kinds of paint protection film, we have settled on SunTek PPF for its performance qualities, visual appearance, and longevity. For us, it was a really clear choice. It’s crystal clear with no visible orange peel – it’s the most invisible film we’ve encountered yet. With widths up to 60”, almost any car hood can be wrapped in one huge piece.
Besides the best auto paint protection film on the market, we also have the largest, most up to date computer cut templates available, which means we can pre-cut all of the films and not go near your vehicle with a single blade, unlike competing shops that cut the film directly on the vehicle. Ultimately, it allows us to reduce the risk of installation damage.
When a vehicle is brand new, paint protection film provides the perfect opportunity to keep it looking new forever. It prevents damage from rock chips, scratches, sandblasting, hazing, air pollution, oxidation, and acid rain. If you plan on keeping the vehicle looking new and protecting one of your most important investments, a PPF installation should be your vehicle’s first modification.
Nobody wants to buy a vehicle that has been repainted and with PPF you’ll never have to touch up your paint job because of damage from road debris and exposure. Almost invisible, SunTek PPF is completely safe for OEM paint and is easily removed if you ever choose to do so. It works on all painted surfaces, including boats, RVs, recreational vehicles, and a whole lot more!
Our one-year warranty covers edge or film failure due to defects or installation error. It does not include scratches from daily use or damage inflicted directly to the surface of the film. Once our one year expires, the manufacturer’s warrant comes into effect. See the SunTek Manufacturer’s warranty for details. Warranties are non-transferrable if the vehicle is sold.

The paint job of your vehicle, be it a car, truck, SUV, RV, motorhome, boat, or anything else, is one of the most important factors in not only its looks and the pride you take in it, but also its resale value.
It’s important that your vehicle’s paint be protected so that it stays looking its best from day 1 to day 1001. While the easy answer would be to just never take your vehicles out into the world, that defeats the entire reason a vehicle exists. Once out in the world, it seems that everything you encounter is conspiring to damage your vehicles paint job. Just a few of the things that can do damage, that you may not have ever thought of are:
These are just a few of the things that are out there waiting to eventually break down tour paint job and ruin your vehicles good looks. While it is true that your vehicles paint job has a clear coat protectant applied over it, and that when you wash your vehicle at most commercial car washes a “booster” to this protectant is applied, it is not enough many times. Waxing does help a bit as well, but again, it’s not enough to provide true protection. For the best level of protection, you need paint protection film on all of your vehicles. This clear rubber-like protective coating, once applied to the outside of your vehicle, keeps your paint looking like new against all of the above-mentioned things, and more. You may have heard that this can be a sizable investment, but the good news is that PPF doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can be. This is especially true when you think about the cost of having to have your vehicles repainted every few years. Here is a price guide for PPF for your vehicles.
Paint protection film cost is mostly based on the size of the vehicle being covered. Most mid-sized to large cars and trucks can run between $500 to $2000 for coverage. While this may seem like a lot, think about how much it would cost to have your entire car professionally repainted with a high-quality OEM paint every few years for the duration of your ownership of the vehicle. You can see that the average of 10 years of good looks and higher resale value that you get from the investment you make in PPF makes a lot of sense.
PPF pricing can be different depending on the type of vehicle that you want to get protected. There are different types of protective film used for water bound vehicles than are used for road-bound ones. Thicker, more durable film may be used on an RV or touring bus that is mainly used on highways and interstates, than on a family sedan that is only driven on city streets. The type of vehicle, and subsequently the type of film product used can make a difference of 20%-40% to the price of the PPF installation job.
Just like with any other type of vehicle film application, be is vehicle wraps or window tint, PPF pricing is dependent largely on the shop that does the job for you. While there are some shops out there that will offer lower prices or faster turnaround times, ask yourself how they are able to do this.
Usually, it’s because they are using a lower quality PPF product, or that they are using the thinnest possible product for all of their jobs. We only use the highest quality products for our jobs and are proud to say that we feel this is the best product line for paint protection film in the industry. We also use only the industry standard installation procedure to ensure that the application is successful. We also go one step further though, and triple check everything multiple times along the way to ensure that you get only a perfectly applied PPF surface when you come to pick up your car.
We are ready to work with you right now to get you the paint protection that you need for all of your vehicles, from RVs to Cars and trucks, from hunting vehicles to watercraft, and everything in between. You can get in touch with us using the online contact form we have right here on our website, or you can call us at the Henderson shop at (702) 566-8326. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Protecting your vehicle’s coat of paint in an environment like Las Vegas is no easy task, but it is incredibly important. The quality of your paint job is directly related to the value of your luxury car, truck, SUV or RV or bus. There are so many things in Las Vegas that can potentially damage your vehicle. There’s the burning, scorching, bleaching heat of the sun. There’s the dust from the red deserts. There are pebbles and debris that fly up as you cruise down the highway. There are people who walk back from the casino, show, bar or nightclub who get a little careless with metal jacket buttons, a pair of car keys, or any other sharp object. With the right protective film for your vehicle, you can extend the life of your paint job and therefore, the value of your automobile.
Your paint job will last longer when it is guarded by a protective film. This is important because you get to maintain the value of your vehicle much longer. In that sense, a paint protective film is actually an investment. Keeping your vehicle in a film will also prevent some of the most insidious types of damage, like decay due to air pollutants and toxins, chemicals in road water, and any other threat you may have not yet considered.
When it comes to options for protecting your paint job, there is an old saying that applies well: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You don’t want to have to be back and forth to the shop every time a pebble flies up on the highway and scratches your paint job. You certainly don’t want to have to replace an entire paint job for a larger accident. Protective film is affordable, practical and reliable compared to both of those options.
Once your care is gloved in a protective film, you don’t have to worry too much about oxidation, pollution damage, and a million invisible threats to the quality of your ride. In fact, you may even forget it’s on there because with Team Acme’s experts, you get a perfectly clean wrinkle-free see-through installation.
A protective film is a great way to make sure your vehicle lasts, especially in the many environmental threats posed to it by Las Vegas. If you are ready to prevent dust, air pollutants, water toxins, dead insects, pounding hail, and acts of vandalism, get in touch with Team Acme. Our team of artists and technicians are equipped to handle any job no matter how big or small. All you have to do is call us up at 702-566-8326 or contact us online.

Anyone familiar with paint jobs on vehicles knows that creating them is a layered, detailed, multi-step process. To begin with, there’s primer, paint and clear coat all designed to protect the vehicle’s hull, adhere to the shape of the car, last a long time, and protect the paint itself.
Team Acme has protected paint jobs on luxury cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, and buses.

Team Acme asks our customers to bring a clean car to PPF day. We like to inspect the vehicle for imperfections and wear and tear in the paint job so we can make a useful recommendation based on what we find. There may be some damage so severe that it would be unwise to slap a film over it, but if everything looks good, we’ll happily proceed.
During our PPF application process, we are careful to never bring a blade near the vehicle in question. This is an extra measure of safety that is overlooked by some of our competitors. By pre-cutting all of our film, we can make sure we won’t leave any unwanted marks in a vehicle’s hull.

After testing several types of film, we’ve chosen to work with SunTek PPf since we’ve found its crystal clear appearance and durability to be the best in the industry.
